Nikola Jokic had a tight hamstring

Nuggets coach Mike Malone said Nikola Djokic had a tight hamstring before game five. Jokic played through it and looked like he might have been injured during the match as well. He still had a 30-19-8 and almost sent the series to Denver.

“I don’t understand people finding a way to criticize Nikola Jokic,” Malone said. “Is he perfect? ​​No. I’m not saying he is but a man is the definition of a warrior.”

Great effort by Nikola Djokic

Nikola Jokic with the game for all times, even in the loss. He scored 30 points / 19 rebounds / 8 assists. This has only been done 10 times in the history of the match. The second time Jokic did it. Karim did it twice. Wilt did it twice. Elgin Baylor did it twice. As did Barclay and Oscar.

Warriors win at 5

Steph Curry with 16, 34, 27, 33 and 30 points in this series. He started it with stinging minutes, hadn’t played in a month, came off the bench in the first four games, looking rusty for about half of one and just as rusty for the rest of the series. Close the nuggets.

Edge warriors attack

The Warriors waited until the end to do so, but the game changed when they decided to attack the Edge. Steve Curry stopped relying on three-pointers and put the Jukek Warriors (and cousins) into pick-and-roll. And when Denver tried to pre-switch out of it, the Warriors weren’t deterred

Jokic struggles to change directions

Jokic seems to be having some trouble changing directions. He’s up and down the field but he’s not moving sideways much at the moment.

Non-jokki nuggets

Seems like a proper extension for Nuggets now.

Nikola Jokic has carried the team all season, people have lamented how poorly his supporting team made his MVP case and now these non-Jokic Nuggets have to keep the team afloat long enough so he can come back with five fouls and what might be an injury.

Denver is sitting pretty well through two quarters. restricted on the road. They flipped it nine times and only produced three Warriors points.
